Call SERVPRO When Spring Cleaning Your Barnstable Home Becomes a Restoration Project

Technician cleaning a toilet From general cleaning & mold remediation to water & fire damage mitigation. Our Team is ready to help with all your restoration needs.

With warmer weather finally upon us, many Cape Cod residents are taking this opportunity to start their spring cleaning. However, homeowners may often find larger household issues when clearing clutter. Rodent infestations, mold, puffback soot and other household headaches may just be looming around the corner.  Trying to tackle these situations alone may just make it worse. Here’s some examples of why some common household issues should be left to the professionals:

  • Puffbacks: puffback-related soot damage will deteriorate objects and structures in your home, sometimes past the point of restoration. Plates and fine China will discolor, paint can be left permanently stained and electronic appliances can be irreversibly damaged. If not treated correctly by a professional, parts of your home or business that you wouldn’t expect to be damaged could deteriorate before your eyes. Furthermore, through use of patented cleaners and chemical sponges, SERVPRO removes puff back damage thoroughly and permanently.
  • Rodent Infestations: SERVPRO of Mid-Outer Cape Cod is trained to safely remove animal related biohazards and dispose of them properly in accordance with OSHA and health regulations. Equipped with the necessary safety apparatus and cleaning products, we can help transform these unhealthy environments back into clean, safe homes and offices. Also, anytime animals stow away in your home, it’s more than likely that your insulation needs to be replaced. Trust SERVPRO to clean or replace your insulation fast, easily, affordably and efficiently.
  • Mold: Remediation makes sure that MOLD STAYS GONE: Removing mold stains will only get rid of its appearance for a brief amount of time. The mold spots will come back larger and more toxic than before. By calling a restoration company, you’ll be saving time and money that could’ve been wasted on a more severe mold problem down the line.

If spring cleaning becomes more of a home restoration project, call in the PROs at SERVPRO of Mid-Outer Cape Cod.  We are available 24/7 for all your restoration needs.  CALL US at 508-778-7378.
